1:24:10 Nerfs Confirmed!

On another note, am I the only one that thinks that a patch to The Bee could end up leading to the sort of modding that we saw in BL1?

This is what I'm concerned about. Normally I don't play in random lobbies, but I can imagine this happening, and once it does, the 7 second kill will be lessened to a 2 second kill.

I mean, when one gets down to it, people use the Bee/Conference Call to take things down easily, of course. When that's taken, some people will find other things to do/other methods, but others will still want that "I just killed the raid boss super fast" power.

Personally, while I do think the Bee is crazy, I would prefer it the way it is to a rapid influx of mods.

Public games are already unplayable so I don't give two flips about modding.

Yes of course Gearbox downgrading a poorly balanced piece of equipment (in this case the damage multiplier of about FIVE THOUSAND) ,leaves people with no choice but to hack the games save files and edit weapon stats.


You people are ****ing hilarious.

*read through more of the posts

*people still don't get it

Again, half of you never work for video games. If you did, I'm sure you'd all make a literal "Win every single fight by pressing 1 button" sequence, and argue with your fanbase that if you find it unfair, don't use it.

Well, I wouldn't say it's their only choice, they could play the game like it's meant to be played but at the same time you know there are going to be a ton of mods coming out that return Bee to it's former glory. Assuming they nerf it that badly.

Tell me this then; Why argue about modding if you're content with the Bee? It doesn't affect your game at all, and if you don't like it, don't use it.

Same exact argument, yet you're treating modding like something different.

The Bee 'nerf' will effect the modding community not one bit. They have already pieced together monstrosities that break the game and MORONIC CHILDREN have already started paying them via paypal for duplicates of these. All nerfing the Bee will do is bring about a semblance of balance to the end game.

Gearbox intended for the Bee Shield to be the way it is.

people fail to realize that for some reason

They are only going back to readdress the issue because people have complained about it.

I'm actually quite suprised especially with how their response to Duping has been.

All things considered I'm wondering if they'll boost that paltry 20k capcity up to 30k or more to offset whatever proposed nerf they intend to impose upon the Bee Shield.

After all you nerf the damage and thusly take away any benefit to using it. I wonder if this will lead them to nerf something like the Nova Shield which does 189k damage when the shield wears off.

Maybe they'll nerf some of those spike shields, is it fair that an enemy that removes your shield with malee should be instant killed pretty much?

also yeah, you remove Conference Call/Bee combo and people will use modded guns.

Right now you are still somewhat challanged with the CC/bee, well challanged not to get hit at all or you lose that major dmg boost and you are left very open to being killed with such an underpowered capcity shield.

Can't hit you if they're dead.
